Angus and Julia Stone Stealing Hearts (And lights) at Canberra’s Llewellyn Hall

Top 5 Blogs in Canberra

Blogging has become one of those things that everyone does. Like photography where if someone owns a camera they’re a ‘photographer’ the same can be said of blogs. The truth is that blogging is not as easy as starting a blog and writing a handful of posts. Successful blogs take time, dedication and persistence. They build [...]

Queuing at Centrelink

I haven’t noticed before, but it seems that service providers (Centrelink, Canberra Connect, banks etc) have their personnel patrol queues or “greet customers” in place of getting a queue ticket. On the surface this seems very reasonable.  However when I went to Centrelink Braddon about a letter threatening to suspend or cancel my 90 yo mother’s pension, the “greeter” [...]

Best of Canberra – Eggs Benedict

2 days agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

For me, one of life’s true treats is going out for a leisurely breakfast/brunch. My meal of choice is often Eggs Benedict.

Hot weather, dogs and cars – a recipe for disaster

2 days agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

Trying something new with Bloody Lips

3 days agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

Bloody Lips (words of passion spoken and sung) was my first experience of Performance Poetry.
